3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad 80s style exploitationer
Eyes of A stranger isn't the worst of its kind, and does offer some suspense and likeable characters. There is effective creepiness, such as the killer's cuckoo clock, and the phone calls are decidedly weird. There is way too much nudity however, the film revels in this. But it is an interesting game of cat and mouse as the newswoman makes it a personal vendetta with the...

this movie is a pretty decent entry in the suspense genre.it reminds me
of a few other movies,one of which is called Someone is Watching Me.i
mention this movie because both can be found in the box set entitled
Twisted Terror collection,along with four other suspense an/or horror
movies.i enjoyed this movie more however,as i feel it is better paced
and more eerie and suspenseful.i also really like the music.it really
set the tone for the movie.as far as i can tell,this movie marks the
feature film debut of Jennifer Jason Leigh.it isn't a huge role,but she
is impressive in the screen time she is given.Lauren Tewes (from
Loveboat fame) is really the main character and is actually very
credible in a serious role.this movie made me uneasy and had me on edge
throughout.for me,Eyes of a Stranger is a 3.5/5

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable Slasher Flick, April 15 2002
By 
Brian P Saur (Los Angeles, California) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Eyes of a Stranger (VHS Tape)
Hadn't heard of this one until I noticed that Tarantino screened it at one of his film festivals. It's got Lauren Tewes(Julie from the LOVE BOAT) and Jennifer Jason Leigh. It's really quite suspenseful in parts. Tom Savini worked on the make-up effects(I would imagine that this is what drew Tarantino to the film in the first place). For the slasher film fan that's hiding in all of us......

4.0 out of 5 stars What is with people's memories?, March 24 2000
By 
Eva Waite (Capital City, USA) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Eyes of a Stranger (VHS Tape)
People only remember negative things. Fact is when this film came out that both Siskel and Ebert really liked the performance of Lauren Tewes but couldn't actually bring themselves to say go out and see it. This film does manage some genuine scares. Jason-Leigh started her weird career playing a victim and even then went for broke. Remember, Lauren Tewes actually admired, look it up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Underrated suspense thriller, Feb. 3 2000
By 
Phineas J. Buttplug (Woodside, NY United States) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Eyes of a Stranger (VHS Tape)
Recipient of some of the decade's worst reviews, this film deserves a better fate. It has moments of sheer, unadulterated terror that makes the shower scene in Psycho look like Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood in terms of visceral impact. I'm not putting down the Master, but "Eyes of a Stranger" works as a tribute to him. I think he really would have enjoyed this film. It does what Hitchcock liked to do best, manipulate the audience.

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Twisted Terror Collection - Deadly Friend / Dr. Giggles / Eyes of a Stranger / From Beyond the Grave / The Hand / Someone's Watching Me (DVD)
Great buy for what you get in set.
Still have not watched "Deadly Friend" of "The Hand" but I'm guessing they will both fair the same as the rest below.
Here are my ratings for each film excluding those above;
Someone to Watch Over Me - 3/5
Eyes of a Stranger - 3/5
From Beyond the Grave - 3/5
Dr. Giggles - 2/5 (or 4/10, which ever ya like)

Thats all for now.

3.0 out of 5 stars head floating in a fish tank, cool!, April 7 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Eyes of a Stranger (VHS Tape)
Ive seen every Horrer, slash movie, Devils, Demons, Stalkers you name it, this movie is as scary as any. I think, that it is the sexual predetor part of the movie, that most people dont like. Jason, Freddie, Micheal, they never stalked anyone to rape them, just kill, mutilate, dismember, decapitate, or eat. go figuer. anyway its not for the squemish. you might want to rent this movie before you buy it.
